Melrose resident Wildie Ceccherina participated in her 19th Walk for Hunger this year. She joined 43,000 other walkers and volunteers who raised $3.6 million to fund more than 450 food programs that protect the individual and strengthen our community food security.


The following was submitted by Project Bread - The Walk for Hunger:

As the state’s leading anti-hunger organization, Project Bread is dedicated to alleviating, preventing, and ultimately ending hunger in Massachusetts. Through The Walk for Hunger, the oldest continual pledge walk in the country, Project Bread provides millions of dollars each year in privately donated funds to support hunger relief through emergency programs, schools, summer food programs, community health centers, farmers’ markets, community suppers, home care organizations, and other programs that protect the individual and strengthen our community food security. The Walk’s flagship sponsor is Freihofer’s Baking Company; its participating sponsors include Arbella Insurance Group Charitable Foundation, and Raytheon Company.
